You spend hours trying on clothes and spend hundreds of dollars (or more) on clothes-yet when you open your closet, you can't find a thing to wear! What gives??? How can you stop this wasteful spending and start loving what you wear?!?
This common dilemma can be a thing of the past if you deploy these 5 tips below:
1. Go with quality. While fast fashion (trendy items) are super-tempting...too many trendy clothes are a waste of your hard-earned money. Most trendy pieces are made cheaply and will wear out quickly. Instead, stuck with quality items that are classic in style. Invest in one quality piece vs. 5 trendy items that will soon need replacing.
2. Get the right fit. One of the main reasons you can't find anything to wear is because most of your clothes don't fit you correctly. Either they are not right for your body type, or the fit is off (too large or too tight in the waist, bust, etc). Not only will you look better in your clothes that fit you properly-you deserve it. Make fit a top priority. Get the needed alterations and finally look and feel fabulous!
3. Buy for the woman you are today. love the professional look of a sheath dress and blazer. I could shop for these items every time I'm at the mall. However, this "business style" is not part of my current lifestyle. Ask yourself, "Will I wear this today? Do I already have similar items in my closet that don't get worn often?" Buy clothes that reflect your current lifestyle and climate.
4. Care for your wardrobe. If you only buy investment quality pieces they will last longer. They also deserve to be cared for correctly. READ the garment's care label. Know how to launder and dry it. Most often, air drying extends the life of your garments.
5. Set up "capsules" in your wardrobe. This is by far the biggest money saver! Create capsules. Capsules are a small grouping of clothes that mix and match with each other. For example, they will include 4 tops, 3 bottoms, a jacket, a lightweight sweater all in similar colors. Find out how to create wardrobe capsules and see examples of what exactly include in my eBook "The Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe".
Not only will you save $$$ on your wardrobe by buying less...
You will actually become more stylish because you have streamlined your wardrobe!
It's a win-win!
